Anyone know why she was suspended?

WOW, that's way too light of a suspension if thats the case. Anyone that gets caught pencil whipping has no doubt done it countless other times without being reprimanded.

Forgive my ignorance, but I've never heard the term "Pencil Whipping." Is it the same as "stroke shaving," as in recording her score incorrectly to her own benefit?

What a weak suspension by the PDGA. She's won Junior World Championships. Was that because of the stroke shaving? Are they going to vacate her wins during a certain time frame?

That article was bizarre. Apparently someone was mad about her getting a feature in that local rag and complained enough to get that written up.

As for pencil whipping I am curious about the circumstances. There are times where players legitimately make mistakes and remembered a hole. If you have multiple lost discs or a backup or a weird penalty situation; you should be able to count your strokes but I understand it can happen. Or was it straight up cheating?

I don't know all of the details, I do know multiple people that have played with her, and she was caught straight up cheating many times, and early on it was her dad doing the cheating for her. Not nearly all of the instances were reported to the TD/PDGA and were dealt with on the card, and we can only guess that she got away with it on other occasions. Things from writing down a different score for herself than what she says out loud, to saying a different score than she actually shot "Oops, I forgot"

From what I've read, people have suspected her cheating many times and she was finally caught when someone took a picture of a scorecard before she submitted it to the TD and when the TD actually received the scorecard the scores no longer matched what was on the picture. This was blatant cheating.
